Instagram announced a few new features rolling out today including the addition of five new filters, slo-mo video uploads, and real-time comments.

The five new filters arriving today include Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Perpetua, and Aden (pictured below). Instagram said the new filters are “more subtle” and take advantage of “higher image quality, while still giving you a simple way to capture the mood, tone and feelings of the moment.”

Inspired by the photography, art, fashion and design of the global Instagram community, we’re releasing five new filters that we believe are our best yet… They soften and subtly shift colors to achieve the look and feel you want for your each photo… To make it easier to choose between filters, we’ve updated how they’re displayed. When you go to apply a filter to your photo, each filter icon on the bottom now displays a blurred preview of your photo with its effect applied. This lets you see at a glance how your photo will appear with each filter applied.

In addition to the ability to upload slo-mo videos shot on your iPhone, you’ll also no longer need to refresh to see new comments as Instagram said they will now appear in real-time following today’s update.


Other new features arriving today include “the option to adjust your photo’s perspective using the adjust tool” and the ability to customize the app’s filters tray based on your preferences via a new manage button.

The new features will arrive for users today in the latest version of the Instagram mobile apps.
